2002 Ford Escape XLT Choice 4WD 4dr SUV (3.0L 6cyl 4A)


All I have to say is wow! Ford hit it pretty good with a cheap 4x4 to get around in the winters and summer in Canada. I have to say that the only real problems I've had is changing a motor under warranty. Other then that my Escape has treated me well. Off road in this and you'll be very surprised. I've had the chance to go with Jeeps and such with no problems geting through the muck. Ford has put metal parts on this "truck" where you would see plastic, ie; end links. Very strong SUV. Fuel economy is something to get used to but then what would you expect to get in a near 4000 pound vehicle? Tows great. Transmission is good. I plan to enjoy this "truck" for another few years yet.

Best Features

4x4, sunroof, white gauges, and the fact you can recline the rear seats back-fold the front seats completly level. Stiff ride is nice too.

Worst Features

A 4-lo and locking or posi final drive and rear differential
